A powerful two thumbs up documentary

Posted : 4 years, 6 months ago on 27 March 2015 09:12 (A review of Life Itself (2014))

When you hear the word critic, who's the first critic you think of? I'm probably guessing Roger Ebert, who was and still is the most famous critic of all time! This documentary 'Life Itself', goes into Roger Ebert's life as a critic, his working with Gene Siskel and his 11 year battle with cancer!

This documentary is wonderful! It creates emotion with the scenes of Ebert in hospital and the interviews from his wife Chaz Ebert, film director Martin Scorsese and film critic Richard Corliss! It delivers almost everything you need to know about Ebert! It's got scenes of intense emotion and also scenes of comedy of Ebert and Siskel bickering! A powerful two thumbs up documentary!

Hilarious smart crossover

Posted : 4 years, 7 months ago on 15 March 2015 07:37 (A review of The Simpsons Guy)

Since I heard about the Simpsons/Family Guy crossover, I was really excited. To hear my two favourite adult cartoons would be interacting with each other. And I was not disappointed, in this crossover, you get so much more than the Griffins going to Springfield and meeting the Simpsons! Bart (Nancy Cartwright) and Stewie (Seth MacFarlane) make prank calls and do skateboarding together, James Woods meets James Woods and Homer (Dan Castellaneta) chicken fights Peter (Seth MacFarlane)!

This crossover has all sorts of funny or clever ideas and dialogue such as Peter's comic strip, them not knowing what state Springfield is in, the jokes about the different skin (Peter not drinking the water because everyone appears to have hepatitis, while Homer greets the Griffins as his albino visitors), Peter telling Homer how to do a cutaway gag and so on. The court scene really got me though! Despite some of the discriminant themes ( the homosexual Bruce being accused as a pale imitation of Smithers and African Americans Carl (Hank Azaria) and Cleveland (Mike Henry) together), this also featured a perfect cameo from a very famous cartoon character, as the judge!

On the other hand, it's not so surprising that the crossover got mixed reviews. Critics were negative about the episode being written entirely by Family Guy and nothing from The Simpsons as well as the many adult scenes such as Peter and Homer's fight and their erotic car wash, which were said to be inappropriate for younger fans of The Simpsons. These scenes were inappropriate but then The Simpsons isn't a kid's show either! And actually while these scenes were inappropriate, most of them were still pretty funny!

You ought to see The Simpsons Guy for yourself and if you have, did you love it, or did you think it was the Worst. Episode. Ever ? Some like it, some don't like it but I really enjoyed it! A hilarious smart crossover

This ought to be locked in a Bio-Dome

Posted : 4 years, 7 months ago on 6 March 2015 09:22 (A review of Bio-Dome (1996))

'Bio-Dome' is a stupid awful film! The plot sees idiot friends Bud (Pauly Shore) and Doyle (Stephen Baldwin) getting locked inside a Bio-Dome for a year. This ought to be locked in a bio-dome as a bloody whole! This film isn't funny, it doesn't feel like a year passes of them inside the bio-dome, the jokes aren't funny at all and the acting makes me want to yank my ears and hair out! This film is awful and nothing about it makes me recommend it unless you want to see how bad it really is!

Marvellous, attractive looking horror

Posted : 4 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2015 03:30 (A review of Psycho (1960))

'Psycho' is marvellous, attractive looking horror. With this, Alfred Hitchcock brings you a film that will keep you glued to the screen by its visual style and you'll only want to look away during the murder scenes! With great plotting, visual style, direction and acting, 'Psycho' is one of the best horror films of all time, if not the best!

This fresh hell is indeed garbage

Posted : 4 years, 7 months ago on 28 February 2015 09:12 (A review of The Garbage Pail Kids Movie)

Bluuuuuggggghhhhh! Arrrrgggghhhhhh! That's how I feel about fresh hell like this! 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie', one of the worst films of all time. For the worst film of 1987, it's in competition with another very dreadful film 'Jaws: The Revenge' and this film wins! This fresh hell is indeed garbage!

Presumably the target audience for 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' is children and it's definitely inappropriate! Not just adults but also kids will figure out it's a huge piece of turd! It's surprising this film was only nominated for three Golden Raspberry Awards and not a load others! The film has no plot, the Garbage Pail Kids look creepy, their mouth movements are poor and they do disgusting stuff like biting toes off, urinating themselves, farting in faces and use snot to try to fix a television! And that's what makes me want to puke! There's also heavy references to alcohol and weightism (Santa being locked up for being too fat and Abraham Lincoln being locked up for being too skinny).

The acting is also extremely bad, Anthony Newley, Mackenzie Astin and Katie Barberi are appalling in the lead roles and don't get me started on the actors who play the Garbage Pail Kids...

To compete for the worst film of all time, it's between 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' and 'Disaster Movie', it's hard to decide which is worse but I chose 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' because at least 'Disaster Movie' has one good scene. 'The Garbage Pail Kids Movie' has absolutely no good scenes at all! This movie has become the WORST MOVIE EVER!!!

An assembly of gorgeous animation and great plot

Posted : 4 years, 8 months ago on 20 February 2015 12:34 (A review of Spirited Away)

'Spirited Away' is an assembly of gorgeous animation and great plotting. It tells the story of a family who move house and discover the spirit world. The parents are turned into pigs, the girl Chihiro (Rumi Hiiragi) takes a job working in Yubaba (Mari Natsuki)'s bathhouse to find a way to free herself and her parents and return to the human world.

I was completely amazed by this film. This is the best animated film I've ever seen! It's also one of the best films of all time. This film has some of the greatest animation with fantastic quality and beautiful drawing! The plot seems as if it's taken 'Alice In Wonderland' to Japan, and it does it so brilliantly. The score is absolutely beautiful and heartbreaking and the film is just full of surprises!

'Spirited Away' is the kind of film that makes you cry and makes you excited. You learn loads of things in this film that completely surprise you and for me, I just hoped for even more surprises! The cast deliver brilliant voice acting in both Japanese and English!

You will love 'Spirited Away', if you like to keep your eyes glued to fantastic animation, your mind to brilliant story telling and your ears to a beautiful soundtrack then this is the animated gold for you! I can't get the look of the animation out my eyes! 8)

Utter crap game that looks about 10% complete

Posted : 4 years, 8 months ago on 19 February 2015 11:50 (A review of Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing)

'Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing'. Boy they weren't kidding when they said "over the road" but also it's "under the bridge" racing. This is the kind of utter crap game that looks about 10% complete! The lorry can drive through anything but can't cross a bridge without falling down a hill! The lorry also defies the laws of physics by driving up a mountain with its back facing the bloody ground! The graphics are just awful too and don't get me started on the 'YOU'RE WINNER' sign! Not much better than 'E.T. the Extra Terrestrial'

One of the better Tim Allen movies

Posted : 4 years, 8 months ago on 18 February 2015 10:02 (A review of Galaxy Quest (1999))

I've seen Tim Allen comedies like 'The Shaggy Dog', 'Wild Hogs' and 'Crazy on the Outside'. The former was not really that good and the two latter were pretty stupid. But along with the 'Toy Story' trilogy, Tim Allen has made pretty good films like 'The Santa Clause' and this is a pretty good film too where he acts alongside Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman

'Galaxy Quest' is one of the better Tim Allen movies. The film sees actors from a space TV show as they get kidnapped by an alien race and have to play their roles for real! They spend most of the film alongside a brilliant visual style in space!

The visual style is great, as is Alan Rickman's hairstyle and the cast are pretty good in their roles. This film certainly can't beat 'Toy Story' but is actually better than 'The Santa Clause'. Worth watching!

Not as bad as I expected but still not very good

Posted : 4 years, 8 months ago on 17 February 2015 07:56 (A review of Flubber (1997))

Now when I heard of 'Flubber' and read some reviews, I thought I was going to hate it and then it was not as bad as I expected but still not very good.

'Flubber' is a remake of the 1961 film 'The Absent-Minded Professor' where a professor creates a substance called flubber (flying rubber) but has to deal with his wife. Here the professor is played by Robin Williams and the wife is played by Marcia Gay Harden.

The visual effects are great and the concept of the robot reacting with something happening and showing a shot from a film or TV show is pretty good but where the film goes behind is that there is too much slapstick and too many innuendos. I don't hate this film but it could be better without the lrge amount of slapstick and innuendos.

A very good movie

Posted : 4 years, 8 months ago on 7 February 2015 09:40 (A review of Ted)

Ted (Seth MacFarlane) is a work of magic from a boy's wish, the film 'Ted' is a work of comedy from the mind of Seth MacFarlane, the creator of 'Family Guy' and 'American Dad'!

Seth MacFarlane voices the title character Ted, a teddy bear who was bought to life by his owner and best friend John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) as a childhood wish! They grow up together (with Ted receiving some fame) and are pretty immature with Ted often smoking weed! And to mention that illegal drug, this language isn't as poor as the swearing in the film 'Ted'

It's not a kid's movie, don't let the talking teddy bear fool you! The fact that talking animals don't make something kid friendly is already demonstrated on 'Family Guy' with Brian Griffin as the alcoholic talking dog!

Most of the immature stuff John and Ted do is in public and they never get arrested. Ted starts working in a grocery store and has sex on the groceries they sell to the public and he gets promoted! Just the weirdest thing ever! John has to deal with his girlfriend Lori (Mila Kunis) and has to kick Ted out the house!

Along with the Oscar nominated song 'Everyone Needs A Best Friend', 'Ted' contains the hilarious thunder song about flipping off and insulting thunder!

There's also a plot of a man Donny (Giovanni Ribisi) and his son Robert (Aedin Mincks) who want to buy Ted from John so that Robert can torture Ted. Eventually they kidnap him and Robert rips his ear off. When playing hide and seek, Ted calls John and John is able to call back from receiving Donny's number earlier! The hilarious fate of Donny is him being arrested and charged with kidnapping a plush toy but the charges are dropped because it sounds too stupid! XD

'Ted' is currently the funniest film of 2012! It's not as funny as 'Borat' or 'Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy' but still hilarious comedy! It comes very close to being a great movie and I really, really like it! The epilogue of the characters made my face hurt from smiling! XD...Ouch!!!
